The world is under attack once more, and it’s up to your squad of elite, turn-based soldiers to keep humanity safe. We’ve just gotten word that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is headed to a wide variety of iOS devices come this Thursday, June 20th. Everything from the iPad 2 to the fifth-gen iPod touch is getting a taste of Firaxis’ XCOM effort — should users choose to fork over the $19.99 asking price, that is.
Aside from multiplayer (which is coming via free update post-launch), the iOS version is just about the same as its console and PC counterpart — you build up resources and strike back against the alien menace threatening to tear apart Earth, with the occasional break to torturously study the enemy via “dissection.” Whether the enemy is still alive at that point, well, that’s a question for your science team. For a full list of supported iOS devices, head below the break. As for Android and Windows Phone 8 support? “We’ve only announced plans for iOS devices at this time,” was all a 2K Games rep would tell us. Not exactly a hard no, but not a confirmation either.
